I am wondering where in the Catechism it specifically states what the Mass is and why we celebrate it. There are some Protestants that I know who have a very warped idea of what they think Mass is. They don't understand why we celebrate the "death of Jesus" (They mean the Eucharist) at every Mass and therefore think that the Mass is a "cult" or "celebration" of death. Maybe it would help to include actual Bible verses as well, considering I am dealing with Torah wannabes/Sola Scriptura Protestants. They might consider the Catechism "not valid," even when it quotes Bible verses.
While I think trying to get the point across to these people might not work, at least I'll feel better knowing that I tried defending what the Church teaches. It is unbelievable what non-Catholics think they believe about our Church. Where do all these wacky teachings come from?
I began reading the Catechism not too long ago but I am only a few pages in. It is truly daunting trying to read this book I must say. Even when taking notes and underlining, I find that even trying to remember the key points is difficult. Any reading tips?
